Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is a highly dangerous substance that needs to be handled with extreme care.

In fact, its volume is only about one six-hundredth of what it was before it was liquefied. If ruptured, an LNG storage tank will begin to spew this liquefied natural gas onto the ground or the water around it. No matter how cold it is, the temperature outside the tank will be much warmer than that inside the tank, which is cooled to negative 260 degrees Fahrenheit.
